Very low disease pressure and perfect slow ripening conditions are the norm around the Chrismont vineyards. Fruit is harvested during the early hours of morning and directly transported to the winery. Grapes are loaded into a membrane press where the delicate free run juice is allowed to drain using low pressures with minimal movement to reduce phenolic extraction. The juices are allowed to settle over forty eight hours to clarify before being racked for fermentation. With a meagre amount of sugar remaining, the vinification is arrested and the wine allowed to clarify. Individual batches are selected to achieve the right balance of texture and flavours before assembling into the final wine.
Light straw with greenish hues. Honeysuckle, lemon and lime on the bouquet. Citrus and tropical fruit on the palate are carried by a great acid structure giving good flavour length, an attractive wine while young, will continue to develop subtle toast and honey complexity. An exquisite white wine, perfect as the most congenial aperitif, a delight alongside dover sole.
